Travel 80 years back in time to learn about one young boy's idyllic summers at his family's cabin at the summer pasture. His experiences are typical of so many Swedish families who moved to a summer cabin, along with all their farm animals, to enjoy life with fresh pastures and mountain air. The f bod way of life continued for centuries - in central provinces such as Dalarna, V rmland, H lsingland, H rjedalen and J mtland and Rune Mats's adventures chronicle its last decade.

Until the beginning of the 20th century, most of Sweden's population lived in rural areas and most of these people had a direct connection to farming. Younger Swedes in Sweden and Swedish-Americans in the USA may recognize fragments of stories they have heard about this way of life from their grandparents or great-grandparents or even their great-great grandparents.
